Driver played chocolatier Dean Delaney, who joined two shopping network hosts played by Mikey Day and Heidi Gardner on their program. Delaney was on the show to promote what appeared to be a regular chocolate Santa Claus treat, but as the layers of tin foil were removed from Kris Kringle, the hosts soon realized that the candy was quite obscene.

It turned out that all the candy Delaney sold was phallic or sexual in nature. The sketch joined others from years past that are certainly adult in nature but still quite funny, including 1998’s NPR Delicious Dish: Schweddy Balls. That sketch starred Molly Shannon and Ana Gasteyer as radio show hosts who are thrilled by ball-shaped gifts from guest Pete Schweddy, played by Alec Baldwin.
